Have you ever wondered what it would like to be immersed in the world of Pokemon? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk into a real life Pokemon Centre? Well now you can…… sort of!
GameStop and ThinkGeek are set to bring Pokemon fans dreams to life as they prepare to bring Pokemon Centers to some of their US stores.
GamesStop broke the news this morning that starting from Sunday November 19th, “Pokemon Centers” will be popping up in GameStop and ThinkGeek locations across the US, as well as their online store. These unique areas of the store will cater to Pokemon fans of all kinds be it casual or die hard. They will find exclusive goods and collectibles not available anywhere else. Pokemon Centers have already been thriving in Japan, and now Western trainers finally get their own Pokemon destinations as well as experiencing the phenomenon that is sweeping Japan.
Senior Vice President of collectibles for GameStop Janet Bareis had the following to say at the press release: “We are excited to bring fans the highest quality Pokémon collectibles at in-store Pokémon Centers, before any retailer outside Japan. The center launches just in time for the holidays, giving gift-givers plenty of time to find a special gift for the budding Pokémon trainer on their list.”
Whether you’re on the hunt for an enormous new teddy, a new collectible statue, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for your 3DS, or even some new booster packs to add to your Pokemon Trading Card Game collection, the Pokemon Center is going to have everything you need.
The only thing we want to know is can we have these pop up in Europe???
